Twitter used to be one of my favorite social media platforms. It was like a never ending party, and you could always find someone to chat with in 140 characters or less.
Ever so slowly though, the party seemed to dissipate. Nobody was liking or retweeting tweets. Starting a conversation was almost impossible because everybody’s feeds were filled with links and ads. It got harder and harder to interact with such limited space – especially when links and photos take away such a big chunk of those precious 140 characters.
But this week we got good news! Twitter has announced 7 new Twitter features that will hopefully bring the party back. No more cropped photos, and attaching an image won’t be counted against your character count. You can search for GIFS and soon we’ll be able to click a “Go Live” button for Periscope!
You can check out all the changes here: http://bit.ly/1ONnAat. I think I’m most excited about being able to search for GIFS. What’s your favorite new feature?
